In early November, ITV made ITV2 HD ITV3 HD and ITV4 HD free to air, and no longer part of the Sky HD subscription package.
In doing so these HD channels were made available on Freesat for the first time.
ITV2 HD ITV3 HD and ITV4 HD were made the default choice on Freesat channel numbers 115, 117 and 119.
As mentioned in a previous post “ITV2HD,3HD and 4HD channels now on Freesat…”
However, these ITV frequencies that carry ITV2 HD ITV3 HD and ITV4 HD can be tricky to receive in Spain. In my service area (Costa Blanca North / Costa Azahar) , a 125x135cm satellite dish with a good LNB just about gets these frequencies (apart from in heavy rain!). Correctly aligned 1.8m and 2.4m satellite dishes should have no problems with reception either. In other areas of Spain, reception will depend on your exact location and dish size.
And as the SD versions of these channels were removed from the Freesat channel list, there is no way to watch them in SD on Freesat (apart from the +1 hour timeshift versions).
But there is currently (December 2022), a way to add these channels back to your Freesat set top box.
The video below shows you how to add ITV2 ITV3 and ITV4 channels in SD to your Humax Freesat set top box.
